Diets and Losing Weight

Dieting and Weight Loss

I’ve been using Primal Life Organics’ Hydrate daily for more than 4 months, and it (along with daily tracking of both my food/drink intake, and weight/steps), has helped me release over 30 pounds of excess weight!

Primal Life Organics Weight Loss. Naturally.

Yes, I track my food and drink intake, weight and steps walked daily, but I have continued to use Hydrate, even when I skip other supplements and believe it has contributed to my positive results!

As my readers know, I have been on the Omada weight management program for more than 6 months. I consistently log my food and water consumption, and the Omada app (connected to my iPhone Health app) tracks my steps. But, I believe the supplements I take, and variety of foods eaten, including rice, have helped me manage this journey and enabled me to stay consistent and release excess weight, naturally.

Hydrate is part of Primal Life Organics 3 part weight loss system that can be ordered separately: https://www.primallifeorganics.com/products/hydrate-naturally-supplement?_pos=1&_sid=4a012a6bb&_ss=r

You can order Primal Life Organics weight loss system here: https://www.primallifeorganics.com/products/weight-loss-naturally-supplement?_pos=1&_sid=d4e0c3155&_ss=r

I’ve carried excess weight on my body for over 20 years, and this is the first time I feel hopeful about my progress!

Why?

Because I feel I have all the components in place, from tracking apps, mind-body resilience programs (such as Integrated Spiral) that boost my mental stamina when I get bored or begin to move into a downward emotional spiral, etc.

I have gained hunger awareness and a good control over food cravings (yes, I still have some cravings, but I have really found a way to put them in their rightful place, and not in or ON my belly)! Haha!

I am actually having FUN challenging mySelf on this journey and allowing myself some flexibility, so it doesn’t feel so rigid! Denying myself certain foods always ended up getting me completely off track in years past. And I just don’t want to be so restrictive!

If I can be helpful or supportive to you, please reach out. I’ll encourage you, not nag—I promise.

Tighten sagging jawline and smooth crepe-like neck skin

Non-surgical ways to tighten sagging jawline and smooth crepe-like neck skin – 2 tips

Fascia blasting

When dealing with crepey skin (usually skin on the neck that looks thin and loose, somewhat wrinkled like crepe paper, one wants to be very gentle, yet achieve quick results.

I’ve found that using Ashley Black’s face blaster tool works extremely well to tighten and smooth the skin on my face and neck.

Ashley’s fascia blasting tools, like her face tool are so versatile and affordable, every woman should have this non-surgical solution at her fingertips!

Stimulates collagen production

The FaceBlaster relaxes muscles and fascia locally in the neck to allow the head to rest properly on top of the spine. Long necks, lengthen the loose skin. Postural changes alone help with the look of the “turkey neck” and FasciaBlasting makes it easier!

Understanding what fascia is and does
Spot reduce fat by smoothing fascia

I did a little demo of the face blaster tool during a one hour Live video on my Facebook health biz page here, if you’d like to see:

Another gel supplement

In combination with fascia blasting, I smooth on a particular gel supplement onto my face and neck. It penetrates deep into the layers of skin to oxygenate and improve cell to cell communication.

The liquid version can be sprayed on skin too!

Non-toxic supplement can be sprayed in the eyes

Additionally, I have naturally improved my long distance vision by spraying the supplement (poured from the 32 ounce bottle, into their smaller spray bottle), into my eyes every morning and doing some eye exercises. I rarely wear my eyeglasses for distance anymore, except for driving.

We’re still consuming this supplement two years later and believe it keeps our immune system strong. We love living well and healthy!

Month 1 Results from using Primal Life Organics’ Carrot Seed Facial Package

Results from use of the Carrot Seed Facial Package from Primal Life Organics

From my previous article where I introduced you to Primal Life Organics’ Carrot Seed Skincare Package, this is the follow up I promised:

WOW! A carrot seed oil face cleansing and moisturizing system that IS truly wonderful for any type of skin!

Ease of consistent use

I am NOT a “beauty routine” kind of gal, but this system was sooo easy to use and integrate into my morning routine! It was actually enjoyable!

Starting from the first day, I was eager to wash my face with the luxurious carrot seed oil cleanser. I looked forward to its bubbly creamy consistency every morning, so that prompted me to continue using it day after day!

Skin improved

My skin is aging and sensitive, so I was excited to experience the rejuvenating properties of this carrot seed oil skin care from Primal Life Organics.

I started noticing a difference in my face pretty quickly!

  • Skin texture improved
  • Skin stayed smooth
  • Skin stayed hydrated all day (no dry or flaky areas!)
  • Age spots began to fade, or become less noticeable

Before and After

I know it may be difficult to see the difference in my skin from these pictures, but I can see it and FEEL the difference!

Note: Disregard the redness beside my nose from my eyeglasses. And the lighting is different in these photos.

8 easy free things you can do to improve your health at home

A conversation this week with Chris Waltein, a very “tuned in” Holistic Health Practitioner at Awakening Wellness Center, and Director of Operations at Awakening Into The Sun (St. Petersburg, Florida) gave rise to this blog post! Thank you Chris, for an aWEsOMe conversation and tour of the new wellness center!
There are many easy and free things all of us can do at home that can improve our health. Most of us know and do some of these things, but we may not have tried them all–and we might be able to increase our vitality and longevity by incorporating more of these tips into our daily routine.
So, here’s a short list for consideration. Click any of the highlighted words to learn more about each:
  1. Drink more water
  2. Get more sleep
  3. Meditate
  4. Eat fresh home made meals — including raw veggies/juice
  5. Massage your body — if you live alone, you can do self massage or acupressure!
  6. Deep breathing — there are many benefits and techniques
  7. Laugh! Yes, there are real measured benefits just from laughing daily!
  8. Move you body–Any kind of movement!

Some ideas on how to get the cells of your body moving:

Yoga, Qigong, Pilates, Tai Chi, gentle stretches to improve mobility and flexibility, lunges and squats, walk (either alone or with a neighbor or friend), run, dance, garden, walking meditation, stair climb, swim, golf, play any kind of sport, etc.
There are many ways to get your blood and lymph moving (some within a very small place)! Always go at your own pace and be kind to yourself — there’s no competition, just move a little more every day and measure your improvements!
While practicing deep breathing you can add any of the following healing energy medicine modalities, such as: Jin Shin Jyutsu, EFT or Reiki to calm, relax, and rejuvenate your body.
There are many aspects to yoga. You might want to begin with the yoga postures (how you move your body) and progress to the other mind-body and spiritual enlightenment aspects. I would recommend you to find a well-rounded yoga teacher and take some classes. I initially learned yoga when I was a teenager, by watching x on television.
Many years later, I took an in-person class and there was a world of difference! Dr. Alison J. Kay teaches a more complete yoga because she was trained in India as an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, and also trained as a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher of 200 hours (RYT-200).
Pilates has been a modality that I’ve only recently explored. I take classes at Blue Sage Pilates in Bradenton, Florida and I LOVE IT! I can’t say enough about how it’s gently strengthened my muscles, increased my flexibility, and enabled me to breathe much better! It’s so much more healing than I ever knew! It’s not just for dancers. Anyone, young or old, can learn and practice Pilates for health. I highly recommend it!
Now, take out a pen and paper. Jot down some of the things you want to improve about your physical body. Try one or two of the things from this article that you aren’t currently doing. Give it a couple weeks, and then write down all of the improvements.
Come back to this article and comment to let us all know what you did, and the differences you’ve experienced in your energy level, overall health, or vitality! I’ll be looking forward to it!
Also, if you’ve already been doing these things, or have another alternative, natural, or holistic health recovery experience to share with me, please comment or email and let me know – especially if you’d like me to add your story to my third book (in progress).

To our feeling great, better health, and longevity,
